STR-DN 1050 After 1 Month
 
I would consider myself a user of moderate ability, I am not an audiophile but try my best to utilize the feature sets of this receiver. I am very happy with my purchase and selection of this receiver. I have owned the STR DN 1050 for a almost 2 months (May 2014). I bought the STR DN 840 for my parents a year earlier. Being very happy with my previous purchase The STR DN1050 obviously has a lot more features and connectivity options. Pros: - Easy to use - Feature set, connectivity options, wif...

Very disappointed
 
I am very disappointed in this product, especially the lack of competent technical support. The user manual is so vague and over-simplified that it fails to address any issues that a user might have when attempting to connect to several different components. The unit is not working properly, and the remote control appears to be malfunctioning. It will not allow me to even search for a radio station, and nothing displays on my TV screen. After calling Sony several times, I was on hold ETERNALLY, ...

What A Disappointment
 
I did not like the video output. It did not upscale 720P to 1080P; that is something I was hoping it would do well - something everyone with cable and satellite require. It did upscale to 4K, but only 1080P content - and it did not do a very good job. It effected my 4K TV's picture in a less than positive way. The video did not look as good as it does without this unit hooked-up to my TV. Did anyone else have this experience? Does anyone else know how to get this unit to upscale 720 to 1080?

Sony STR-DN1050 Falls far short of the mark!
 
What a disappointment... purchased this unit, rated highly, latest technology but only partially implemented.... you can't stream video from the home network or any direct attachment for that matter... blue tooth...but only one way.... can't hook up your stereo bluetooth headphones and listen to your shows or music wirelessly...how hard can it be...an audio/visual receiver/amplifier but you can't listen to your vinyl... no phono stage... hardly audiophile or even music lover grade. Sorry Sony bu...

Sound is great, but has problem with standby
 
This AV receiver is able to reproduce a excellent sound. come with wifi and Bluetooth and lots of other feathers. setup is easy and gui interface is good. I like this receiver except the following issue. But I found it has some issues, hope Sony can fix it through updating firmware. 1.The critical issue is HDMI pass through standby, it actually doesn't go to standby. I found the box is still heating up at this standby mode, measured with a power meter, the power consumption is about 40 W at HDMI...

Great Receiver zero support
 
The receiver was easy to set up and plenty of power to push all of our speakers. the only thing missing was RCA jacks for turn table. We will be upgrading soon to 4k TV and then we will see what this system can do. Tech support is rude, not knowledge and lied to us on so many levels.. We had to upgrade from the 1040 because it did not work right of the box 3 times. Sony did not care if we would buy from them or not!

Great but wifi should support N
 
Only thing keeping it from a 5 star is the wifi connection is only G, not N and none of the instructions specified that. Could not connect to my router initially as my router was set to N only. Wasn't until I searched forums that I found on off hand reference to the fact that it was G that I was able to get it properly set up. Other than that it sounds great and the networking capabilities work.

Good Receiver - but BEWARE of App Support
 
I've had this receiver for about 2 years. The on screen interface lacks some compared to other comparably priced receivers, but the sound quality is excellent. There were initially some limitations and issues with the SongPal (now updated to Music Center App), but most of those have been fixed in the last couple versions. However, today 7/6/2017 I was made aware that the Music Center App will no longer support the DN1050 model. This is extremely disappointing for a receiver in this price range ...

Sony discontinued app support on 1050 receiver
 
Loved the sound quality and the functionality found in the app to run the 1050 receiver until Sony discontinued support of the app in August 2017. DO NOT BUY THIS RECEIVER without understanding the impact of this change. You'll have to use the receiver or remote to control many features from the menu which must have a TV screen to view. I believe there is some functionality that is completely gone too since it could only be run from the app and Sony has not followed up with an updated instructio...
